Proofread it one more time!

Song of Solomon: timeless love poetry in contemporary calligraphy.  

Corrected. How? see the next post.  
One comma too many
If you learn just one thing today, learn to take off your calligrapher's hat and put on your proofreader's hat.  I was ready to frame and show this finished design when a typo* jumped out at me.  Can you find it?

That prompted me to go back and re-proof my other two-dozen finished pages.  

This is the most frequent question that people ask calligraphers; what do you do if you make a mistake?  We will look at one solution this week.   

*Technically, a calligrapher's mistake should be a "write-o."
